Winemaker's Comments

The 2016 Russian River Valley Sauvignon Blanc is a real treat. Imbued with a gorgeous light hue, it leaves a striking first impression with flirtatious aromatics of bright grapefruit, pear, and orange blossom. Fresh pear and lemon come together in a rich but graceful texture that spreads over every inch of the palate. A refreshing burst of lemon, lime, honey, and cardamom combine on a crisp and clean finish with epic length.

Sauvignon Blanc

Sauvignon Blanc is widely grown in California -- at over 15,000 acres, it’s now the third most planted variety -- and often assumes the moniker ‘Fume Blanc’. This popular synonym, credited to Napa’s Robert Mondavi, derives from the grape’s historic home of Pouilly in France’s Upper Loire Valley, where Sauvignon Blanc is the dominant varietal and goes locally by the name of ‘Blanc Fumé’. When treated with respect and afforded suitable growing conditions, Sauvignon Blanc is one of the wine world’s darlings. Steely, racy acidity, green, gooseberry fruit, asparagus and a grassy, herbaceous character characterize dry wines made from this grape.
